How To Prepare Your Business For Christmas

It’s hard to believe but Christmas is fast approaching. It’s a hectic time of year for everyone – even the particularly organised amongst us and it can be tricky to keep track of everything that needs to be done before the 25th. So now is the time to get ahead of the game and get some planning in before things get too busy. Below we have covered just a few things you can do to get your business ready for the additional bookings and orders that this time undoubtedly brings. 


New FTP Import Feature

We have a small new update to the FTP import area that is designed to make things easier and save you time. 

Let’s start with a scenario. I, the photographer, upload my images and receive an order from a customer, but before the order is finalised they want to make some changes to a number of images. This needs to be done before the files are sent to the lab or album designer.

Previously, I would have had to re-upload the images with the desired changes individually and then replace each old file individually. This might be fine if it was just one or two images but would become quite time consuming if there was a larger number. 

Now, however, I can upload the newly edited images in the FTP import and then select the files, with the same file names, that I wish to replace. 

This new feature is turned off by default so that it can be a choice of the photographer, however, we also remember whatever your last choice was so that you don’t have to re-set the settings each time. 

For more information about the Replace Updated File feature you will find the help article here.
